Glad you got a configuration for which the build completed.

Using around 16 GiBytes of RAM and 1 GiByte of SWAP still
seems odd for having disabled FLANG and MLIR. Could you post
your /usr/local/etc/poudriere.conf file content to the list?
I wonder if something else could lead to something competing
for RAM+SWAP space.

Also, if you rebuild at some point, the follow sort of
command's output while the SWAP is in active use could be of

# df -m | egrep "^(Filesystem|tmpfs) "
Filesystem                             1M-blocks Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
. . .

In the likes of /usr/local/etc/poudriere.d/make.conf you
could use something like:

.if ${.CURDIR:M*/devel/llvm*}

to have the MAKE_JOBS_NUMBER assignment only be used for
devel/llvm* builds.
